Poetry Monday

Actually, an excerpt from Cascadia Wolves: Wolf Unbound – releasing January 1 from Samhain. 18 and over – behind the cut, etc.

She shivered and a low sound broke from her lips. God how she craved this, craved being taken in hand. Craved having a man like this one, like Lucas looking at her, finding her beautiful.

“Tell me your name.” He circled her, she felt the heat of his body as he did.

“Tegan.” Her voice sounded breathy, like a low purr.

“Unusual and beautiful, like you are. I love redheads, Tegan.”

She heard the slither of the tails of a flogger and she arched her back. He chuckled. “You like that? Good. I like it too. I like watching your nipples tighten as you anticipate where I may touch you first.”

Lightning quick the very tip of the tails licked her nipples and she moaned at the bright, hot sensation that stole over her. Her knees nearly buckled and her pussy bloomed.

Three more times in quick succession the tails bit into her breasts with expert precision. Not too light, not too hard. It was more the sound than the actual feel, the air as it rushed ahead of the leather of the flogger, the scent of the leather, the creak of the handle in his hand.

He moved around and the flogger found her back as heat spread, narcotic and sensual, over her skin.

After a time she was aware of nothing more than his presence and the slither and snap of the flogger, the heat of her body as the flogger warmed it and the heat of his body as he moved.

She began to sway as the sensation hypnotized her.

    This is quite poetic. I think one of the reasons I like your work is that it is sometimes poetic while always seeming very realistic to me. I can imagine people actually saying the dialogue.

    Whoa, Lauren, I’m sorry I didn’t check in sooner! What was I thinking? (well, actually, I wasn’t thinking)

    This is cool; it gives me a new perspective of the appeal. I get it in ways I hadn’t before.
